The staff here was great.....eagerly allowed us to participate in the wine tasting and allowed us to sample what we wanted. We of course purchased several bottles of wine. Their wine is very good and does not seem to be overly priced. I would recommend a stop here if you are in the area.

We visit the Florida Orange Groves and Winery year after year because it is a pleasant place to visit with a wide selection of gifts, wine and accessories. The employees have always been extremely friendly and helpful. If your looking for an interesting side-trip, this is it!

We live in Cape Canaveral and were looking for a day trip. I saw this place in a magazine and was intrigued. We made the drive across the state and were pleasant surprised. The wines were fruit based and fantastic with an amazing assortment of favors. We were each able to have 8 samples and two smoothie samples. We left... More

Year after year, when we return to the St Pete area, one of our stops is Florida Orange Groves and Winery. The friendly staff is ever happy to share a tasting with my wife, and she always finds a new flavor to bring home. Her favorite is Blueberry Blue, ever since we shared a bottle watching the sunset at St... More

I love the wine! They have so many flavors to chose from that you couldn't possibly go wrong! They have a wine smoothy that tastes exactly like an orange dreamsicle! Red, white, dry, sweet, and everything in between. Their tour is very informative and I found it interesting to see how they do things compared to other wineries. A must... More

Admittedly I am not a big drinker, and know little to nothing about wine, so I am always reluctant to do any kind of wine tasting - it just doesn't appeal much to me. However, I was really surprised to enjoy the wines we sampled at the Winery - a small, rather nondescript looking place alongside a busy highway. The... More

We stopped by here on a rainy day during our st Pete vacation. We were a but disappointed by the wine, although the staff is very friendly and knowledgeable. This is definitely for the fruity drink person... I don't mind a little sweetness but, even the "dry" wines are sweet. Just a heads up because we actually sent out our... More

Sorry to hear you didn't enjoy our wines, Maria. Of course, sweet wine isn't for everyone, but we've got several stories of successful conversions ;) Regardless, thanks for giving us a try. You'd be welcome here any time! Best, Vince, Owner More

I'm not a real sweet wine fan, so I went in (admittedly) not expecting much. But all of the great TripAdvisor reviews really got us interested, so we had to check the place out. We're glad we did! The tour is brief but gives a nice overview of the wine-making process. Our guide was knowledgeable and had a good sense... More

Will never go again, went thru the lack luster tour. Waited thru the video, then when time for tasting, waited for our turn while anyone just walking in off the street jumped right in. No servers even showed like they cared. I hate these kind of wineries that can't control the abundance of rude patrons. Terrible experience.

Go here if you like fruity wines. They provide you with a free sampling of a few wines along with a delicious frozen Key Lime Smoothie. Very friendly staff! They do provide a tour as well but we didn't go on it. The bottles of wine are pricey compared to other wineries ($20+) but I guarantee you will still buy... More
